"House committee to hold hearings on FCC's broadband classification today"

"House committee to hold hearings on FCC's broadband classification today"

"At issue are two separate ongoing FCC proceedings looking into how cable-modem and digital-subscriber-line service provided by phone companies should be regulated. While these two forms of broadband directly compete in many cities, they are currently regulated in different ways. Phone companies are required to provide Internet service providers non-discriminatory access to their networks, while cable companies can pick and choose among ISPs. As the commission looks at creating a more even regulatory framework for broadband, ... some are worried that the more closed cable regulations will be imposed on all broadband services. These people want the FCC to adopt rules specifying that the basic open framework that has allowed the Internet to thrive is preserved."
